  • Agreements for rooms in shared house

    I have a couple of houses which I want to let out on a room by room basis. All the standard AST agreements seem to deal with whole properties to jointly and severally liable tenants.

    Does anyone know where I can find a good standard agreement for a room in a shared house and how can I best deal with the inevitable joint issues - like the common parts of the house and bills/council tax.

    thanks

    Will this be a licensable HMO?

    I think you'll need one AST for every room.

      I don't think so, 4 people in one house, 3 in the other, so neither should be a licensable HMO.

      What clauses would need to go in each individual room AST to cover use/maintennance of shared facilities and payment of bills
      ?

        I think you need planning permission to let on a room by room basis, or you could get in trouble if the neighbours report you.

          I have an extremely anti-social and criminal tenant. My neighbours think she is possibly a sex worker and drugs abusing and dealing. She has made a witnessed and CCTV sited assault on one neighbour and has verbally abused others. 3 crimes have been reported and the local authority talk about making...

          I have experienced far more dificult cases than that from my neighbour's tenants with my front window and my flat door window cracked.

          Make an offer she cannot refuse. Carrots work better.

          Local Authorities are slow moving because shortage of housing is a problem.

        • Burglary Damage - Who Pays?

          Our rented flat was broken into, in the process the Yale lock was broken and cost £100 to repair. The landlord is refusing to pay this on the basis we didn’t also lock the door with the mortice lock. We didn’t use the mortice lock as it wasn’t working although the landlord did not know this....

          Since the Yale was broken it proves the tenants took responsible measures for the security: they locked the door.
          The yale is necessary for security. It is sufficient and safe to use in case of a fire because you could get out quickly operating the lock with the thump ie you don't want to be looking...

          Q2 – What type of Tenancy Agreement (TA) is this e.g. sole tenant / multiple tenant / room only? Three people all listed as the Tenant under the agreement

          Thank you all for your comments. Very useful, informative and much appreciated.

          The tenants are "moving out" on the last day of the current tenancy i.e. at the end of the term. My understanding is that if they're all listed as the "Tenant" then if one gives notice it's...

          You are also aware you are now liable to pay her a penalty of up three times the deposit value?.

          My experience of a drug addict is that they will leave with a financial offering.

          Strike a deal taking into account your likely penalty and eviction costs and offer her an amount...
